lyrics

Brigid’s birds mark my way
darting arrows in the sky
and the North Wind,
she dances with them
giving wings to their cry

And I could be a monk
alone on this white strand
I see those who’ll come after me
and I’m waiting for them to land

And the stars shine bright
as the fire burns low
How can we ever go back
to what we used to know?

The history of galaxies
unravelling in the night
will the land hold our memory
like the sky holds light and life

If your blood is in the ocean
and my tears are in the sea
then our story’s in the water
could it hold eternity?

And the stars shine bright
as the fire burns low
How can we ever go back
to what we used to know?

Fire burns cold
It’s the fields that are full of gold
They were a casket for
his body, for his soul

And you say,
“Don’t be afraid.”
And you say,
“Well, we’re all leaving anyway.”
And you say,
“New life comes at the end.”

Well, this is the end.

Brigid’s birds mark my way…

And the stars shine bright
as the fire burns low
We’ll never come this way again
that much I know
